It's good habit to just create the link to the page if you know the link SHOULD be there. It allows other editors to quickly jump to that page and start typing away. :) --Briess 19:56, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Heh, OK, I'll try to remember that. ;) --Tarran


First off, you're doing the redlink stuff incorrectly. Second we just discovered something that needs to be done before the redlink processing can be done. Emi [T] 19:17, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Err, I was doing it wrong? Sorry! it's just that I'm a partial perfectionist, argh... And what needs to be done? --Tarran 19:28, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah you created some redirects that went Mainspace -> 40d -> Mainspace -> 40d. The way to fix these redlinks, is to change the link itself, or click the link, and add a redirect there. The rule to follow (once the bot is done with moving stuff), is this, mainspace should never redirect to anything but cv:, 40d should never redirect to anything but 40d, 40d should basically always link to 40d.

Hello. It looks like you're trying to fix the red link problem. Since the original move didn't get all of the articles, there are a ton that haven't been moved yet. That's being done automatically right now, so you don't need to do it. VengefulDonut 19:20, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Weeeeee, I just did moving without the need to! :P --Tarran 19:28, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Copying over articles from 40d[edit]

This is pointless and counter productive. If someone wants to see how something worked in 40d, there is a link to the 40d article right on the page. Because of this fact, it's better to have a blank page rather than one with potential misinformation. People will write articles about things they know once they know them, and until that happens we can use the old ones. VengefulDonut 02:41, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Ehh, guess I didn't see it that way, I'm sorry, I'll try not to let it happen again. --Tarran 02:46, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
